We booked Leijay Resort for 2 nights as the start of our Sri Lanka trip, and as a base for our Galle visit. It was an unexpected pleasant surprise. We found an oasis of rest: situated in the jungle outside Galle with a nice garden and pool, a perfect place to combine city/beach daytrips with relaxing at the resort villa.... More

On arrival, I was really worried about the location (it was hard to find and a little of the beaten track), but after talking to Dinesh, it really was no problem at all, they could provide us a tuk tuk and numerous times we just text him to pick us up. He was wonderful and very helpful. The room was... More

We stayed here for the long weekend of the Tamil and Sinhala new year and where happy for the family style, attentive staff and the real quiet environment. recommended for those who need to relax away from the city noise. Galle town and the beach are just minutes away on a tuc tuc operated by LeiJay. Max and Lella

My wife and I stayed here while traveling around the world for a year. Hands down, this is the best value and best experience we have found anywhere. The garden is unbelievably beautiful, the pool refreshing, meals on the peaceful veranda delicious and a good price, and the room comfortable. We did a few day trips in the area, but... More

The food was very good. The service friendly. The swimmingpool excellent. We enjoyed staying in this guesthouse and met interesting people there. If we were to return to Galle, we would like to stay there again.

We booked this accommodation based on other reviews and were a little disappointed. The resort is well out of town (which had been pointed out) and there is nothing close by making you very reliant on the hotel tuk-tuk. You do have the sensation of being in the middle of the jungle. The rooms are spacious and clean but very... More
